The Ping G400 has been bringing the heat on Trackman lately!!! Had a fitting today and the player picked up 14 yards of carry with an optimal landing angle as well. Ball speed increased nearly 3 mph, raised launch, and lowered the spin significantly. Anytime you have a negative attack angle, that is a hard thing to do from a fitting standpoint. With the right shaft setup and the G400, it was no problem at all. :smilie_ping:  :thumbsup:

Thanks Marcus, this is what I've been hearing!

 

Ping now has all the shafts in stock for demo fittings, etc., and I tried a G400 in their upgraded shafts.  Really nice flight and turned it over without the SFT probably due to the smaller head side.  Swing speed jumped up by a couple of points with a shaft at 45.25.  Not bad.  

 

The thing I noticed watching some of the fittings is that they start out hitting an X manufacturers club and eventually gravitate to the G400 which is almost as long, 2-3 yards difference, but really straight and  consistent in length and side dispersion and they sound great!

 

I also noticed that  the length of other drivers on the market  that they are now  beyond the 46 inch mark.  

 

This is why the G400 is now moving a head of the graphite infused driver in sales.  Thats what they tell me anyway.

 

My friend had Ping customized with digital lofting and adding a bit of draw bias to the standard G400.  

 

Just my thoughts...

keep that in mind if I get to swing by in December.    I'll try not to show up recovering from a torn leg muscle this time.

I think you will be impressed.  We don't need no damn 460 drivers!  :D

 

Just have to loft down a bit.
